To help attract top leaders, managers and analysts to the education sector, Activate ED has launched “Education’s Rock Stars.” This 10-week campaign consists of a series of 10 videos that showcase some of the top people currently working in education.
The campaign provides a taste of some of the important work taking place in education today, and makes the case for entering this purpose-driven career.
Education is the most critical issue facing our nation today. America is feeling the pressure of competing globally rather than just within our own country. This new global economy demands more from educated and skilled workers for the jobs of tomorrow, placing a critical need on improving education opportunities for all students.
Teachers, principals, administrators, and policymakers are all working hard to modernize our public education system and transform it into one that can prepare students with the skills and knowledge they need to be successful in school, work and life. Their vision: a system that focuses on individual student learning, clear standards and goals, and the opportunity for creativity and diversity in teaching and learning.
Through innovation, leadership and tenacity, these trailblazers are redefining what it means to be in the field of education. The need for top-notch professionals at every level of the education sector has become imperative. There are numerous challenges, but the rewards are vast and the opportunities abound.
There has never been a more exciting time to advance the important work of our nation’s teachers and school leaders. A career in education provides the chance to truly make a difference in the lives of others and the future of our nation. Visit www.activate-ed.org to get involved.
